now to debate those issues, chuck schumer of new york and newly elected republican senator ted cruz of texas. welcome back as senator cruz to "meet the press." back to both of you. i want to start on the gun debate. because as i say, even before the second term is officially underway thissy is bait is well underway. here are the highlights of what the president wants to accomplish. universal background checks. he'd like to pursue a ban on high capacity magazines. an assault weapons ban that lapsed in 2004. and he'd like stricter laws on gun trafficking. but senator schumer, just as i challenged wayne lapierre of the nra very hard when this came up, i challenge you as well with a question of, is this really going to make a difference? and rich lawry wrote something that caught my attention in "the national review." no one can write a law against mothers owning guns that one day might be turned against them by deranged sons who then commit horrific acts of murder-suicide. shooting rampages are hard to prevent because they are so often committed by young men with no criminal records wh

in part deal with sequestration and deal with the issue of -- >> but senator schumer, the reality is the president is willing to throw the long ball on this big sunday of football, when it comes to gun control. and yet because of his view of republican recalcitrants, he doesn't step up and show real leadership and be proactive on a big spending cut proposal and medicare put proposal because he doesn't want to go there. why throw the long ball when it comes to gun control but not take a leadership role when it comes to spending cuts? >> well, he is. in the negotiations up to the fiscal cliff, the president put things on the table. $400 billion in medicare cuts. he was talking about change cpi, which -- >> you're talking about more revenue. that's not big enough on medicare cuts according to simpson-bowles and others. >> we have already done $1.7 trillion in cuts. we've done $600 billion in revenues. you're going to need more revenues as well as more cuts to get the deficit down. and i've talked to leader reid. i've talked to budget chair murray. we're going to do a budget this year

wants more. now, chuck schumer is saying, i'll play this in the next segment that he wants tax reform, but tax reform means another increase of revenue, in other words, another increase in taxes. is this negotiatable? will house republicans hold the line? and how do you stop this president? i mean, can you shut down the government? are you willing to shut down the government if the president won't deal with entitlement reform where all the spending is? >> look, you have to deal with entitlement reform if you want to save medicare, that's where the president has been so wrong. we've passed one of the toughest budgets anybody has looked at saving medicare and we grow the economy 13 million people are out of work, we put them back. this is a very conservative congress, and we've stand on ours, and this fight will put us on stronger ground and more importantly shall the american people are going to be with you from the statement if you can't pass the budget you shouldn't be paid and how could you move forward giving anybody a debt limit increase if they can't tell how to spend it. >> sean

have marco rubio on the same page as chuck schumer. yes, we told you pigs are in the air, and senator schumer has high hopes for this proposal. >> we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there's more political risk in opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. >> but like everything else in washington, not everyone is on board. take republican senator mike lee. he quickly issued this statement in opposition to the gang's plan. here's what he said. reforms to our complexy and dysfunctional immigration system should not in any way favor those who came here illegally over the millions of applicants who seek to come here lawfully. the problem is without reform, there are 11 million people who are undocumented who are living in this country right now, and you can't just support them all. that's why everyone has hit a big wall until the pigs started flying today. miguel marquez spoke to some young people today, and here are their stories. this issue is very personal. >> three yo

. meanwhile, speaking of nbc's meet the press yesterday, charles schumer says the senate will pass the budget for the first time in three years, but he stressed the plan will include opposition by new revenue. it would seem as though the markets are reading this favorably. talking about pushing this issue three months down the line, how positive of an outcome is that? >> i don't feel comfortable about that. my concern is you keep on pushing it back, the market feels good for the first couple of months, but then it knows it has the problem coming for june and then september. so i think this would be a very, very dangerous outcome. but probably lurking in the background for the u.s., as it lurk he in the background for the eurozone, as well, it's not just about the debt ceiling, they have to get the debt down. the debt ceiling may get raised, but it's not being tackled long-term. >> it seems every single time consistently we get the opposite outcome. which means some areas are consistent and it raises debt levels going forward. >> it seems to me as though we can't fix this one because democrati
: what do democrats say about passing a budget today. >> reporter: chuck schumer said the senate would pass a budget this year. the battle will be over spending cuts and what is included in that very budget. yesterday with the top congress alleaders at his inaugural luncheon president obama called for working together. >> i recognize that democracy is not always easy, and i recognize there are profound differences in this room, but i just want to say thank you for your service, and i want to thank your families for their service, because regardless of our political persuasions and perspectives, i know that all of us serve because we believe that we can make america for future generations. >> reporter: first challenge will be that debt ceiling vote tomorrow the first of many fiscal issues to be tackled in this new term. >> reporter: let the games begin. mike emanuel, thank you very much. what is the likelihood of a senate budget resolution. coming up minutes from now we'll speak to one senator who filed a balanced budget amendment today, republican senator mike lee of utah joins us. jon
in their judgment. well, new york democrat senator chuck schumer calling the bipartisan blueprint a major breakthrough. he claims his fellow democrats are not looking to play politics with this plan. >> we do not want immigration as a wage issue. much rather we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problem and becomes law. it is our hope that these principles can be turned into legislation by march and have a markup by chairman leahy with the goal of passage out of the senate by late spring or summer. lou: senator mccain bluntly acknowledged the republican party has been losing support of hispanic voters and says this agreement will change all that. >> the republican party is losing the support of our hispanic citizens. and we realize that in many issues which we think we are in agreement with our hispanic citizens, you will find that this agreement has very little difference from that of the legislation that was led by senator kennedy some years ago. lou: meanwhile, we will be joined by one of the leaders of the efforts to, working for a year on the republican proposal, adamantly opposi
a little more hammering out. so senator schumer summed up the democrat's point of view. >> we recognize in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that's why our framework says we can address the status of people living here illegally, while at the same time creating an immigration reform system that assured will never again confront 11 million people coming here illegally. >> jennifer: under the senator' plan, most illegal immigrants would be able to apply to become permanent residents, which is a first crucial step towards citizenship. but the republicans wanted to ad beefed-up border security. so the path to citizenship for 11 million will only happen if certain boarder enforcement measures are put in place, that includes investment in new technology including drones for border patrol agents, and all of the new security measures are going to have to be certified by border states. that's emerging as one of the most controversial parts of the plan because there will be a commission of people from the border states that will decide

" and "roll call." chuck schumer just said the republicans brinked. did they blink, susan, and does it matter if they did? >> i think a big recalbraigz on their part. they find themselves on the defensive when it comes to the debt ceiling issue. remember how they vowed they would only raise the debt ceiling by a dollar for every dollar cut in spending. now they said never mind. we'll push that down the road. the big fight will be on the sweeping spending cuts that go into effect march 1 and on the government funding that runs out on march 27. march is going to be the month to watch, and it's a month that could end in a government shutdown. >> ifill: is it the kind of fight the republicans want to have to redefine themselveses? >> i think they do. gwen, i think you have to know when to hold them and know when to fold them. yes, the republicans folded on this wise wisely. finally, i think they got some smart on this. you have to pick your fights. they need a breather now. they've been on the defense for a year on tax cuts for millionaires, on toughness, shutting down the government, they're not
. still no apology from beyonce. senator chuck schumer telling the new york post that the pop star has not called to say sorry for lip syncing the star-spangled banner. he says he is not asking for one. "saturday night live" couldn't resist taking their own shot. >> dr. king, she was there to sing our national anthem. >> was she? ""access hollywood"" would beg to differ. >> "access hollywood"? >> they said she was lip syncing, and i was, like, and i care why? _#jayzee is one lucky man. >> they had a lot of fun material this weekend. i'll see you here tomorrow at 11:00 a.m. eastern time. now with alex wagner is coming up next. hi, alex. >> hey, thomas. there are actual signs of compromise on capitol hill, but as a bipart sfwlan group of senators unveils a group for immigration reform, republicans continue to struggle with an identity kritsz. we will examine prescription with a gop fix with our guest, sam stein, jody cantor, and jonathan alter. plus, the politics of disaster relief and the tao of chris christie. we are joined for a discussion on the gitmo hearings and the obama administr
, it sort of blows my mind when i look at the roster here. we have chuck schumer of new york, we have dick durbin of illinois, robert menendez of new jersey. and on the other side, we have serious conservatives like jeff lake and marco rubio. left/right coalition on immigration, mark. how does that work? >> i think it speaks to the ideological diversity of our country and, actually, the evolution of the senate now. and, you know, you see senate republicans that used to treat compromise like a dirty word and now they're coming out and putting forward a proposal with their democratic colleagues that to a large degree mirrors the key principles that the president has identified. i do agree this is a golden opportunity for senators like marco rubio and with the other guests that mentioned that, but i do disagree that the president hasn't shown leadership here. he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform as a key priority of the first, you know, as the beginning of the second term. so i think that what the senate democrats and republicans have done is gotten out in front and tryi
in there. schumer, mccain, rubio.menendez. it feels to me as if a month of sundays may have just hit the calendar. the stars are aligning. it does feel different. whether it's going to be enough i don't know. i think republicans have really been sobered by the last election results. i think they feel they have to do something. seeing leadership from people like marco rubio i think really does give a lot of republicans who might have doubts otherwise a real chance to think again. >> the credibility, the aura, the halo that may be needed here. jackie, those eight senators we were showing are putting their bipartisan plan out the day before the president is scheduled to outline his immigration proposal in a speech in las vegas. what are you seeing in the timing? are they trying to triang late? >> it shows momentum on this issue. here's the thing which has been the hitch on a couple different things this year already. the house. the house is going to be hard to get this through the house. it's going to be hard to get some house republicans on board. but the fact you have this bipartisan
to have a senate budget has too often been described as just a minor procedural matter. senator schumer, who explained recently, said, well, the democrats did have a budget because there was a budget that came out of the sequester agreement in mid-2011. now, never mind that the senate hadn't had a budget that spring or the spring before that or that the parliamentarians said that the sequester deal wasn't a budget. somehow coming up with one number was supposedly good enough to be a budget. that's like if you sat around your kitchen table and had a discussion about how you're going to spend the money, here's how the discussion would go. "okay, i think we ought to spend x amount of money. that's the meeting. we've just decided that's what we're going to do." and that's somehow the budget? and particularly when x amount of money didn't relate at all to the amount of money coming into your family. nobody believes that would make sense. we'll see whether senator schumer's words this weekend will produce a budget. the house has acted. the president says he wants the debt ceiling increase. ho
the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule a
